Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel and Conference Center Colorado Springs
Better then I expected!
Purchased the room on the internet, then after reading some reviews, we were nervous, but figured for the price we paid, we could afford to walk out and go somewhere else. The staff were very friendly, nice and eager to please. The room was clean as any of the other hotels where we had stayed on this vacation. Also the rooms had been remodeled recently. However, the hotel is old, the resturant was not in opperation that evening, but they shuttled us to a very nice resturant not very far away. All in all for the price we paid, our experience was fine.
Loved the LE BARON
I booked this hotel online and then read all these reviews.but don't believe everything you read. we got there and everything was wonderful. the hot tub was awesome. the pool a little cold for my blood. the rooms were just as good as any other hotel. the staff was excellent. the only complaint was i kepy losing my money inthe coke machine, which they refunded. i would stay here again any time. It was wonderful. these people who were unhappy were from another planet. stay here it is worth it!
Less than Expected
Booked the hotel online. The lobby was a true representation, but the rooms were lacking. We just wanted a cool room and a quite place to sleep. The 1st room's A/C stopped working within 30 minutes. The 4th room finally had a working A/C. But after about an hour the noise and racket from the unit made it impossible to sleep, and we travel with ear plugs! We will not be staying again, nor should you.
Nice Older Hotel!
This is an older hotel just west of downtown Colorado Springs in an older neighborhood. The staff was VERY friendly going out of their way to please us. Being an older property, it had a few issues but evidence of remodeling work was apparent. There is an onsite restaurant with a very limited menu.
One big concern I had was security and safety. The last night we were there, I was looking for something out of my vehicle in the dark parking lot. I was approached by 2 people trying to pan handle some money. Fortunately, they went on their way but given the darkness and no barrier between the street and neighborhood, it could easily have gone bad.
What a dump! Do not stay there.
What a DUMP of a hotel, this hotel should be closed or bulldozed. The overall appearance of this hotel, I would never recommend or ever stay there again. In otherwords don't waste your money!
We have been under renovation since March of this year. All our guest room balconeys have been remodeled along with our second and third floor guest corridors. The parking lot has been resurfaced and we remodeled our lounge by adding seven new television monitors and furniture. These projects along with many others are scheduled to be completed by mid June. We are truly sorry you have experienced the inconviences of our renovation projects. We trust that these projects will enhance our hotel to those future travelers.
What a wonderful hotel!
What a wonderful hotel staff! From the sales and catering staff to the front desk staff, I would recommend this hotel to anyone! They all did a fantastic job!
The hotel is certainly not posh, but a good value for the money. It could use a little "sprucing up", but all in all was what we would expect for what we paid. The best part was the friendly service.
Everyone we came in contact with was anxious to please. The breakfast coupons were a great value -delicious. With a rental car, we had no problems getting anywhere we wanted to go.
Needs lots of repairs
Lobby is impressive but rooms need reparis and paint, poorly lighted, swimming pool missing tiles, hot bath not working, and exterior of place in need of paint. No questions asked when you leave. I would not stay there again.
Lobby is beautiful and impressive, our room was neither. There were problems with our TV (they were fixed quickly), the air conditioner was very noisy, the bathroom was dingy and while we were close enough to walk to the downtown area, the neighborhood made us very uncomfortable after dark. We will not be staying there again until the rooms are upgraded.

... to Richmond was delayed (because the incoming flight was late) just long enough for me to make a flying run to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory store in terminal C. It's a good thing, really, that we don't have RMCF in Virginia (well, there is one store, but it's in Roanoke--four hours away), because these are delicious chocolates. Of course, they cost about $2 apiece, so I can't afford them often anyway.
We were further ...
... USS Ticondaroga, laughing over photos of the 3 men in uniform. They shared common experiences on the aircraft carrier of their voyages to Viet Nam and Japan. Did I mention, these 3 all turned 21 while they were on the ship? Tthere were stories abundant about their exploits on and off ship! ( Oh I wish I could have been a fly on those walls!)
We bowed out about 6:30PM and came back to our rig. We decided to just warm ...
... you can no longer overlook anything. Of the remaining three, no sign (literally). The Visitor's Center is the most namby pamby visitor's center I ever saw: you can go in and get a map (which we already had), on which no one will draw a yellow line, apparently. There must have been six people sitting behind the desk; not one showed any interest in us. There is, however, a HUGE gift shop. (We did not partake.)
... was back on the road. I slept pretty well leaving Omaha, but got woken up by Brent about 4 am becase he was about the pass out. I was crabby. My mom will attest that I'm not the best if you wake me up, and I was in great form. But I sucked it up and started my next driving shift. It was actually quite lovely to watch the sun rise. It's been a long time since I've seen that. We hit Denver at morning ...
